DAFFODIL Weekend returns to Thriplow this month for the 39th year.

An estimated 800 visitors are expected this year - and will help raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, the event's chosen charity.

Apart from the daffodils to admire, visitors will also have the chance to explore an arts marquee and listen to pupils from Thriplow Primary School reading poetry.

Music will be supplied by the Perse School Swing Band and the Whittlesford Red Lion Folk Club.

Organisers have added a new attraction with a farmers' market, which will sell fresh and organic produce from local growers.

Other activities include a bird of prey demonstration, morris dancing, craft stalls, horse rides, and garden displays.
